Suzu Naito is a 17-year-old high school student who lives in a rural Kōchi Prefecture. When she was young, she was close with her mother who supported her love for singing and writing songs. However, one day, Suzu witnessed her mother attempted save a child from flooding river at the cost of her own life. The traumatic experience caused Suzu to resent her mother for "abandoning" her for a stranger's child, and she's unable to sing. Any pressure for her to sing would make Suzu cry and sick, alienating her from most of her classmates for exception of her childhood friend Shinobu Hisatake whom she has a crush on, the most popular girl Luka Watanabe, her sportsman classmate Shinjiro Chikami nicknamed Kamishin, and her computer geek best friend Hiroka Betsuyaku nicknamed Hiro. Under Hiro's suggestion, Suzu signs into the popular virtual world known as "U", and creates a pretty avatar with freckles she names "Bell", the English translation of her own name's meaning. Upon logging into U, Suzu finds herself capable of singing like she used to. Bell's appearance is at first criticized due to her freckles, but after making several appearances while singing, Bell soon became a big hit. Following her popularity, people start to refer her as "Belle", which means beautiful in French. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Belle is a uniformly well-done drama, with a moral purpose at its heart. Gugu Mbatha-Raw has a lovely screen presence as Dido Elizabeth Belle Lindsay, the illegitimate daughter of an English naval officer and an African servant. As a child, Dido had become the ward of her great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson, in one of his finest screen performances). Mansfield was the Lord Chief Justice of England, and master of Kenton House, where much of the film was set. The screenplay by Misan Sagay implies that the Mansfield family’s love for Dido would eventually inspire Lord Mansfield to render a verdict in a landmark legal case that would mark the beginning of the end of legalized slavery in England. Dido’s idyllic upbringing is shattered, as all involved knew it would be, when she finds as a young woman that, despite an inherited fortune from her father, she is disdained by upper-class English society. Various characters express revulsion for her mulatto race and her illegitimacy. What goes unsaid in this film is that Dido’s appearance was also an unwanted reminder of a discomforting reality for the era: she probably did not owe her existence to consensual relations.

It's based on the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, who was the illegitimate daughter of Sir John Lindsay (an English Admiral) and an African slave woman named Maria Belle. Dido was brought at a very young age to be raised by her great uncle William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield, and his wife. She enjoyed all of the benefits of an aristocratic upbringing — except an equal status in society because of the color of her skin. Dido's life and her position in the eyes of her great uncle and guardian, Mansfield, who was Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales at the time, does impact, even if only to a small degree, the then-future of the slave trade in England.
